During Raw Reunion last night, #GiveWWEWomenAChance began trending on the Twitter machine regarding how little time women were featured on the show.
There were no actual matches featuring women last night, bar the short 24/7 Championship segments, with the belt being won by Kelly Kelly, Candice Michelle and Alundra Blayze.
A number of other women were also featured in supporting roles, including Jillian Hall, Melina, Naomi, Alexa Bliss, Nikki Cross, Alicia Fox, Maria Kanellis, and Torrie Wilson.
The only major angle that included women on the show was the ‘Moment of Bliss’ segment that had Bliss and Cross hosting with Natalya and Becky Lynch engaging in a war of words ahead of their Raw Women’s Title match at SummerSlam, and even that was only a few minutes.
Perhaps interesting to note is that if we cast our minds back to Raw last week, there was a 24-minute four-way match with Bliss, Naomi, Carmella and Natalya, and most of the criticism for that was that it was too long.
Last year, WWE held its first ever all-women’s pay-per-view, Evolution, but it has been widely reported that there are no plans in place to replicate such an event this year.
Here is a small handful of Twitter’s top rated tweets with the hashtag:
How did we go from being at the pinnacle of women’s wrestling to short backstage segments and 0 women matches on RAW tonight. The women deserve better and we do as well. #GiveWWEWomenAChance#WomensWrestling keep tweeting we need to make this trend AGAIN

Me and every other women’s wrestling fan have seen the disrespect and tonight’s #RAWReunion crossed the line. We’re using our voice now #GiveWWEWomenAChance. Not even 1 women’s match. What a waste they deserve better. pic.twitter.com/wxhbSJ5OL2

I was disappointed that WWE didn't allow female legends to have segments in the ring tonight besides the ending segment. Becky only got like 5 seconds out there. Give Female Wrestlers longer Segments and Matches Too. #givewwewomenachance pic.twitter.com/LiHTa7zoM0

Give them storylines outside of a title.
Give them longer than 3 minutes of screen time.
Give them equality to do their dream at ANY ppv.
Give the legends their time in the spotlight.
